Blue Plate Cafe is amazing! Lively, kind, and delicious food! 4 or 5 specials of the day, and that's about all you can order! Everything was amazing, and I cleaned my plate. Can't wait to go back and enjoy their other specials! Amazing southern food. Just go and try it yourself!

Downtown Huntsville has only a few good places for breakfast or lunch. Most restaurant are the big chains, but I was totally please with the Blue Plate Café. The service is quick and caring. The food is good and wholesome, while the prices are in line with normal expectations. But the sweet tea is what really made this pleasurable dining.... More

We're locals and have been eating here for years. All the food is true southern food and it's delicious. My favorites are chicken & dressing, dumplings, hash brown casserole, squash (only on certain days), strawberry shortcake (Monday only). Those are my favs but I've never had a bad meal here. Breakfast is great too. This is where the locals eat... More

We ate here this morning for breakfast. The food was great and cooked to our liking. Eggs, omelets, gravy, bacon...it was all very good. I want to go back and try their pancakes and french toast, too. The waitress was very sweet and did a wonderful job.

I recently visited the Blue Plate Cafe for breakfast and it was a great experience. The food was good Southern cooking, the sweet tea was great, and the employees were very friendly and attentive. The prices are good and your drinks are never empty. Definitely recommend!

This was a great place to enjoy some down-home southern food during my visit to Huntsville. Prices were reasonable. The fruit plate was amazing.

At first glance this cafe appeared like one of those iconic fifties classics without the poodle skirts and saddle shoes. Inside the the employees move with precision like a well oiled machine. Taking orders and routing everthing through the kitchen. This my fellow travelers is where the whole show came to a very anti climatic end. The food we ordered... More

Although living in the general area most of my life, I just got around to stopping by the Blue Plate Cafe for lunch yesterday. It was everything I had heard it was- great food (chicken and dressing, Mac and cheese, slaw, pintos) and exceptional, friendly service. And they were packed- but our waitress (I'm sick I can't remember her name)... More

We've been driving 40 miles one way to eat breakfast at Blue Plate Cafe for years now. I love the multi grain pancakes with berries.
